Down East

Just to let you know, I'll be mostly incommunicado for a week--in Maine at the inlaw's, celebrating their 60th anniversary. My husband's folks live right on the coast, and last night we spotted seals out in Frenchman's bay, sunning on a rock. One of these days when the sun peeks out, we'll take turns paddling their kayak around in front of the house. It's only a short drive to Bar Harbor and Mt. Desert island. Definitely my kind of terrain!

And my mother-in-law is a gourmet cook. She insists on stuffing us with fresh-picked crab, scallops the size of silver dollars, blueberries, rhubarb crisp, and countless other treats. If I don't gain a million pounds this week, it'll be a miracle. That's why I'm trying to walk a lot--last night, David, Jeff and I pounded the back roads and ended up putting in 6 miles.

I'll blog next from Oregon, Anna and I fly there on the 24th. Have a great week!

Who takes care of Murphy when you are not home? Is it care that is as good as if you were there? I worry about my cyber dog.
